My students need water, juice and nutritious snacks in order to keep them healthy and hydrated.
Do you remember having a difficult time focusing in class because your stomach was growling or because you were thirsty? My 1st graders are always requesting drinks and food.
I currently teach 27 very sweet first graders in a Title I school located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.
All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.
I would love to be able to provide my students with healthy snacks and drinks in order to help them stay better focused on their studies. In addition, I would like to give them drinks in class in order to reduce the amount of time that they are leaving class to go get a drink. I am also requesting cups for our drinks as well as paper towels in order to wipe up spills.
Every afternoon, I notice that my students tend to get sleepy and unfocused.
In order to keep them more alert and tend to their studies better, I would love to be able to offer them healthy snacks and drinks. Please keep my first graders well nourished and hydrated.
